Adding a Font Server
Most Standard fonts are included in X-Win32 by default. However, some custom applications use specific fonts that are not included in the installation. The simplest way to fix the missing fonts problem is to add a font server to the Unix host.
Configuring a font server on the Remote Host
first change the configuration file to listen on the TCP ports
On Linux: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config
On Solaris: /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fontserver.cfg
- Comment out the following line if it exists.
no-listen = tcp
- Run the command xfs to start the font server
Adding the font server in X-Config
- Open X-Config
- Click on the Font tab
- Click Server
- Add the remote host name of the computer with the running font server.
- The default port is 7100
- Press Apply and Restart X-Win32
